“Just another future song”

 

Following hot on the stack heels of ROCK 'N' ROLL SUICIDE and 1984 (both released on April 19th for Record Store Day 2014), June 16th brings the next in the series of special DAVID BOWIE limited edition 7" picture disc releases: the 40th anniversary edition of DIAMOND DOGS.

Diamond Dogs is the tenth release in this continuing run of 40th anniversary 45s, except that this is the first in the series that isn’t a 45 as it will actually play at 33 1/3 rpm.

Originally released in June 1974 DIAMOND DOGS was the second single to be taken from the album of the same name with REBEL REBEL being the first.

The ground breaking six minute track was originally backed by the re-recording of Holy Holy. But, for its fortieth anniversary it will be a double A side with the vinyl debut of the live version of the song taken from the 2005 mix of DAVID LIVE.

The image on the A side of the picture disc is an outtake from the famous session shot by photographer Terry O'Neill and the AA side features a previously unpublished image from the 1974 US tour.
